Steel Frame and Wood Frame: The Benefits of Dry Construction Systems

You have to consider many factors when designing an architectural project in order to ensure quality and value. The construction technique is in most cases the first item to be evaluated, because it is the one factor that properly materializes the proposed design and determines the efficiency of the project in terms of time, costs, labor, finishes and final quality.

The construction sector is responsible for producing a large amount of waste. According to Elcio Carelli, economist and master of environmental technology, 60% of the total waste produced in Brazilian cities comes from civil construction [1]. Diana Scillag, director of the Brazilian Council of Sustainable Construction (CBCS), found that while only 20% to 50% of natural goods are actually consumed by the sector, the urban solid waste generated double this number [2].In addition to wasting resources, traditional construction systems, such as masonry and concrete, demand a greater amount of time compared to other industrialized systems which are prefabricated. Thinking about alternatives capable of adapting to different territories, which are cost-effecient and fast to implement, has become a priority among architects and builders.

Using prefabricated materials in an assembly system eliminates the use of cement and will allow you to nail down the construction of a work in a short period of time. There are two main models: a Steel Frame and a Wood Frame.Skeletons made of steel or wood profiles build lightweight frames, which then lift up the elements that make up the spaces, such as the walls. Contrary to what happens with ceramic or concrete blocks, the frames are closed externally by cement boards, and internally by plasterboards, which subsequently receive other coatings (paint, wallpaper, etc.). Special membranes are strategically placed between the layers of the "sandwich" for thermal-acoustic treatment.The Steel Frame system is widely distributed in European countries. It has been mass produced with specific dimensions and spacing to be coupled with  industrially produced profiles and joints. It is important to note that according to the region in which the project is located, the steel used may vary in thickness and type, derived from the areas (coastal, rural, urban). Normal...
